Back To The House

Go back to the house
Where you came from
Go back there now
Where you came from

With open arms
You will come

With open arms
They will receive you

Go Down

It's ruined us before
Everything a mistake
It's like this in my mind
Tough to get a break

And we go down

It's not like we never
Been through this before
We had our time
Sometimes had more

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar
Recorded: Fall 1994

Halfway

You say you're gonna
Meet me halfway
You say you're gonna
Forever stay
But I got nothing
Nothing left to say
It's been like this
Nothing left to say

You say it's not done
You say it's not true
When I look in your face
I can't believe you

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar

Hattie 1 (Original Demo) & Hattie 2

This could very well
Be a lie you're telling me
Stick it in your back pocket
And hope I didn't see
Once you said that you could lie next to me
I remember looking out over the city

I think about it

It could go on for days like this
Stick it in the closet
And hope you don't miss it
Once in a while
I'd like to see you smile

I think about it

Once in a while
I'd like to see you smile

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

It's Like This

Want you to know
Things come and go
Like there is no end
No end in sight
But you and I know
Know there is end

It's like this all the time


Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

Lose Sight

This job I got
I can't get nowhere
So I'm packing up
Getting rid of what I don't need

Someday I'll see
How it's all meant to be

Find myself looking
Out the same old window
Trying to find somethng
To pull it all together
Is this what happens when you lose sight

How it's all meant to be

Through states I never heard of
Through places I never felt
I only want to lie down
And make it go away

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

No Longer

See the lights go down in
In my empty room
It's no longer you

In a dream I had
You were coming back


In my empty room
The dreams I had
See the lights go down

When are you coming back

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar
Recorded: Fall 1994

Open Window

The world rolls though my open window

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar

Shelter

She took shelter
He never could
She tried to work
But never would
Bring back the time

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

Sunroom

I wish It could be over now

The Days Run By

Tylor Durand: Electric guitar

What Have I

I need your lies
What else have I
And I need the room
What else can I do

I believe in your lies
What else have I

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

At Night's End

At night's end
She belongs to the wind
If I sleep here
Will I see her again
If the train comes
Should I get back on
Or am I waiting
Just a minute too long

She is the queen
Of all that I see
Is what I'm looking for
Right in front of me

You've been there before
It's nothing new
But then again
This job ain't for you
Tomorrow is hard
To put it into view
Lost in doubt
The answers are a few

She is the queen
Of all that I see
Is what I'm looking for
Right in front of me

The few burdons that we share
Are gospel hymns we sing aloud and...

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

Georgia Junkyard 1 & 2

I woke up
In a junkyard in Georgia

I got no beggin cup
I can't keep away from bad luck

So I walked into town
I was lookin for the local lowdonw
I came upon my man Bo Dean
He said you got to keep your ass clean

I got no beggin cup
I can't keep away from bad luck

He said the law is down
On a boy from the outskirts of town

I got no beggin cup
I can't keep away from bad luck

I gotta ride tonight
I gotta hide with the morning light
I gotta keep on the street
I gotta keep on movin my lonely feet

Cause life is so fun
When you're on the run

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

I Gotta Write A Letter

I gotta write a letter to my baby
Or a way to get back home
Cause if I don't send her a little lovin'
I'm gonna be alone

It's so easy to find my baby
When she's looking at me
If I don't see her soon
I'm gonna live in misery

I gotta write a letter to my baby
See if she's over there
Cause if she's not gonna
She ain't anywhere

Gotta see my baby
Twenty two times a day

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

I Want You 1 & 2

You kiss me once
I kiss you twicw
You kiss me again
There's gonna be a fight
Now baby I want you
If I can't have you now
Don't know what I'm gonna do

Kind Hearted Woman

Kind hearted woman
Try your tricks on someone else
You got so many lies
You don't take me by surprise
The way you treat me
I can't live with no one else

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

Lawdy Mama

Wanna go out babe
Too late at night
I got a funny feeling
You're gonna treat me right

Long legged woman
Come and hold my hand
I got a funny feeling
You're gonna love another man

Leaving in the morning
Your crying won't make me stay
I got a funny feeling
Gonna drive you
Gonna push you away

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

Looking South

Back to the river back down south
Back to my homeland
I know it's the same land

See today

We're talking Jack we're talking Gin
Whichever mood you like to be in

Get away

The real story ain't that plain
You see it time, time, time again

Look away

On a plantaion migration
The people rise the depths of despide

Don't see today

The realiztion that there ain't no Nation
It'll eat at your heart
A fine place to start

Can't look away

Down near the river is a trade house
Back to the same house you knew quite well
You start there you end there it's always the same there
No expectation no rival nations

Just look away

History repeats itself I feel it's true
Nowhere to go but back to the river with you

Spring Ends Today

It's been that type of day
You get up and walk away
But you can't even
If you tried
Standin' at the door
Who is it for

You lose again
We never win

It looks like spring
Will end again
Nothin' much matters
Nobody wins

You lose again
We never win

Well most of the time
We bid hello
But then we say
Goodbye

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

Wednesday

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar

Wish I Was In Paris

I wish I was in Paris with you
Where the rain tastes like wine
And it rains all the time
Where true love is not a crime

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar

Wrote This For You

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar

Yer Love

If I'm falling down beside you
Will you pick me up
If I tell you what I'm thinking
Would that be enough

If I had too muchthis evening
Would you still drink me up
And if I don't know what's coming
Would that be enough

Will you still be my love

And if I don't come home till morning
Will you still give me yer love
If I talk too much this morning
Will it be enough
If I don't know all the answers
Will you be spoiling me yer love

I want you for my love

If I'm falling down beside you
Will you pick me up
If I told you what's coming
Will that be enough

I want you for my love

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar
